“THEORIES ABOUT THE UNIVERSE
I am trying to see things in perspective.
My dog wants a bite of my peanut butter 
chocolate chip bagel. I know she cannot 
have this, because chocolate makes dogs 
very sick. My dog does not understand this. 
She pouts and wraps herself around my leg 
like a scarf and purrs and tries to convince me 
to give her just a tiny bit. When I do not give in,
she eventually gives up and lays in the corner, 
under the piano, drooping and sad. I hope the 
universe has my best interest in mind like I have 
my dogs. When I want something with my whole 
being, and the universe withholds it from me, 
I hope the universe thinks to herself: “Silly girl. 
She thinks this is what she wants, but she 
does not understand how it will hurt.”
